Le Guin documentary free to view

1

It seems that PBS have put online a documentary about Ursula le Guin, free until the end of the month. Unfortunately, I don't think it's available in the UK.

    Thanks for the heads-up... I did a quick search and seems it's on BBC4 for exactly four more days, at https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000bh0x, presuming it's the same one called "The Worlds of Ursula K Le Guin"

    Interviewed guests include Margaret Atwood, Michael Chabon, Neil Gaiman and David Mitchell as well as the lady herself

    Just finished watching it, definitely worth a view. There's a fascinating section about Tehanu and how it was both a pivotal book in her own development as a writer, and also extremely hard to write (and invoked criticism from some of her earlier followers).

    Also a section on Always Coming Home, and the geographic and cultural importance to her as a person as well as writer.

    I’ve heard people disparage Tehanu, but I never really got why. A friend of ours gave it a ‘2’ on Goodreads.
